Obtain free plans for building Amish chicken coops on sites such as BarnGeek.com, FredsFineFowl.com and ChickenCoopGuides.com. Social scrapbooking and crafts sites such as Pinterest.com also contain various plans and images for different styles of chicken coops, including the Amish model.
Choosing the right chicken coop design depends on the space available, the number of chickens the coop needs to hold and the skill of the person building the coop. Some coop designs are meant for either a small number of chickens or a small piece of land. In some cases, it may be necessary to hire outside contractors to construct the coop rather than the owner of the chickens building it his or herself.
